Carvoeiro is a perfect combination of a Portuguese town and a modern holiday resort. From a fishing village, it has grown to become one of the favorite summer destinations in Portugal. Carvoeiro is mostly known for its beautiful beaches, hidden between impressive red rock cliffs.
Unlike the hectic atmosphere of larger cities such as Albufeira and Portimao, in Carvoeiro, you will have more of a laid-back holiday. If you are landing at Faro airport, here are several transportation options for how to reach Carvoeiro.
You can use the train on this route only for the part of the trip. By Proximo bus, line 16, you need to reach Faro city and catch the train to Estombar- Lagoa.

Huh! We got tired just reading how many buses you need to change. Let alone when you need to do it, with kids and luggage, on hot summer days. No? We also think so. Although traveling by public transport can be budget-friendly at times, in this case, it would add cost to your trip and waste a lot of time. This travel would take around 3 hours, including transfers. With private airport taxi, you can be in your air-conditioned room in less than hour!
